Builders and contractors now have a new fastening solution with the launch of SPAX composite deck screws, a new addition to the family of SPAX Engineered Fasteners and the SPAX Deck Solution Center category of products.
“We know deck and outdoor living spaces continue to be a priority for our customers and end-users,” said Robert Yates, SPAX associate product manager. “Whether using traditional wood or low- maintenance composite decking, builders now have more SPAX® fastener options – and colors - to get the job done right.”
SPAX composite deck screws are engineered with an undercut head to prevent mushrooming and provide a clean finish into PVC, capstock, and composite deck boards. They come in seven colors to match common composite deck board shades. A color-matching tool on the SPAX website allows users to match the SPAX composite deck screw to the color of their deck.
SPAX composite deck screws also include the following features:
Reverse upper thread clears away excess material
T20 T-star drive for positive bit engagement
Ideal fastener length for use with 1” and 2” nominal thickness boards
Type 17 double slash point for a fast start and to prevent splitting
HCR coating that is IRC/IBC code compliant for use in treated lumber and exterior exposurecondition 3 (general construction)
Tri-lobe shank to prevent cracking or splitting of deck boards
SPAX composite deck screws are available in 75-ct, 350-ct, and 1750-ct quantities to meet the needs of small and large projects.
